Creamy Potato Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Since the weather is cooling a little, I thought I would make some homemade yummy Potato soup with broccoli and cheddar. My husband really enjoys the Panera  Bread soup.  My soups are almost like a chowder, creamy, rich and full of veggies.  Very much comfort food with some lovely sourdough bread.
Yesterday my husband and I visited another neighbor who is recovering from back surgery. He gets to go home tomorrow.  He  loves soup, so I wanted to bring him some of this soup. Well, update, our neighbor is home.  My husband and I drove our Gator vehicle over to visit him and take him some homemade soup, fresh bread and the apple dessert I made. He was very thankful.  While we were there, he said his tv was not working.  So my husband took a look.  After a bit, he figured out it was on the wrong setting. TV once again! Rosie's Owner is coming home on Thursday.  I am sure Rosie will be happy to be home and see her owner, Sharon. While Sharon was away, I created a photo book for her recently deceased husband, John's memories. It was easy to do.  This time I used Walgreens, which was created online and It could be picked up the same day.
